Title:
“Crime has no chance”: the discourse of everyday criminality in the Neue Berliner Illustrierte, 1961-1989
Authors:
Millington, Richard
Abstract:
This article examines how the East German regime communicated and explained the existence and persistence of everyday criminality to its citizens. According to the tenets of the Party, crime should have ceased to exist after the construction of a socialist society in East Germany. It did not. The article analyses the regime’s account of everyday criminality as it appeared in reports and commentaries in the pages of the NBI, 1961-1989. First published in 1945, the NBI quickly became the most popular weekly magazine in the GDR.
